7DoS: The Siesta Sorbetto
The not-so-fun thing about my seven day challenges is that even I plan to do them around weeks that I haven't any plans, sometimes life just gets in the way of sewing and photo shoots. That's been the case the past couple days (also why MTL is taking a few days off).
While I've been able to sew my Sorbettos each day (I actually have two rejects that I'm not documenting), the challenge has been to get in front of the camera and get some good shots. So, the one rather sad photo of me will have to do tonight.
This Sorbetto isn't quite as exciting as the others but it has a little feature that differentiates it: Instead of cutting the front bodice on the fold, I instead cut it at the pleat line. I then had two pieces of the bodice to join. But first, I cut another piece of fabric the opposite way of the grain to replace the fabric that needs to be pleated. Once those are joined, I followed all the Colette instructions as given.
So I have vertical stripes for the length of the blouse and horiztonal stripes for the pleat.
While this isn't my favorite Sorbetto (the fabric looked better on the bolt), it is completely wearable and good for errands and such.
And here is my sad and tired person modeling the shirt.
